Home Sweet Motorhome

AT long last here are the promised photos of the Firefly on the inside.  She is so much nicer than the poor old Pixie Wagon (who is now safely in her new home with a new Dad who is looking forward to tearing her down to nothing and rebuilding).  This is the day after dialisate delivery (a months supply), so it's a full load on board.  As stuffed as she will ever be.

I have to say I find this little bathroom with sink,shower, and toilet combined in a single all plastic stall dead clever.  So easy to keep super clean (as ours has to be with ESRD and peritoneal dialysis).  Yes, I brought my beloved Demodetic toilet with me - you can see her peeking around the shower curtain there.

 Hubbys little computer corner.  In time both big ol' desktops will be replaced with laptops or 2-in-1 tablets and the table with a smaller one.  Real cushions bought for the benches.  And then we'll have even more room.  ATM I've got a box of dialysate under my feet - LOL.
 Left side looking back.  Yes, dialisate piled in the refrigerator nook for now.  We need a new fridge and then we'll have to find another nifty nook to store these boxes.  But again - right now we have a full months supply. As the month goes on more and more of these boxes will be emptied and disposed of.
 Overhead.  This is the back half which has dialisate and the bedding right now.  Normally the bedding is in the cubby under the couch - but dialisate is there right now.  The front half has my little secondary bed and all three big plush alligators so there is plenty of room up there if we need more storage.  I'm a little leery of putting too much dialysis fluid up there as it is liquid and pretty heavy.
 Kitchen and right side looking back.  Ain't it cute?  The table and couch in the back turn into a decent sized bed at night.  Meanwhile, we have an actual table to sit, eat, play games, work jigsaw puzzles, or watch birds out the window.  Some of the stuff on the counter will be replaced with more space saving items in time.
Wifies computer corner.  To the right the door with the plastic bags is the bathroom door. Look at all those cabinets!

So if you've been wondering what I've been doing the last few weeks... I've been working on this motor home, then moving in, then getting the Pixie Wagon to her new home.  Hubby has a full list of little honey-dos that he's been doing for six weeks or so to get this accomplished.  Had a few myself.  Still more to do but we are at least in the new place and relaxing a little.  Next month we'll be on the road!

I've gotten a lot of the little jobs I was doing for various people taken care of.  Down to one book cover to draw and a couple of books to read and review on Amazon.  The river is finally running and may call me away to get the kayak wet a few times before we go.  I am hoping to get going on 365 Horses again, as well as back to writing.  The time away has been good though - I've come up with a notion to connect all of the various disparate Locoweed YA books together in a fairly coherent fashion with a unifying theme and conceit.  (It involves a prehistoric crocodile if you must know) Amazon has gotten back to me and I can pull Bloodline down for a massive rewrite (moan - not again) and then it will go back up with a new pen name, title, cover, and dump those old reviews in the process.  I changed my author page at Amazon a bit - you like?  And I still have adult coloring books and the Blue Dragonfly series for younger kids on the back burner, along with some more Petit Morte - sex stories on down the line.  Strange as it may seem, I believe that traveling is going to end up giving me more time to work on creative projects.  I always get all full of ideas when I'm on the road.  And of course, much art and photos (including some from the hubby who has a terrific eye for photo taking).
